Triangles, circles and squares

With this outfit I'm playing with a lot of patterns but trying to pull it all together with geometric shapes.

Top: Ricki's
Blouse: etsy
Skirt: Krista Larsen (from San Francisco)
Shoes: Fluevog Miracles | Meera

The asymmetrical blouse results in some triangular shapes when layered under this top. The skirt is sewn in pieces with a triangle in the middle where the pieces come together. The tights have lines that make diamonds and the shoes have different coloured leather inlays in triangles.

I usually decide what shoes I want to wear and build an outfit upwards. But I'm shoe obsessed. How do you build an outfit?


  1. Oh god, I love those shoes - I have not yet seen them in person.

    Well, my outfit building is somewhat limited right now, but usually I build around one item (often the shoes).

  2. Really awesome piecing! I love how you took all the colors but also shapes. The shirt layered under is my fav part. Seconding Sheila, I haven't seen those shoes on feet yet - but how freaking cool! They look taller than I expected.

    I build outfits around my bottom piece (skirt/pants/tights/etc) for the most part but often build around one specific item I want to be wearing.

  3. So in love with these shoes!
